I've been going to School of Rock for almost two years, and our shows keep getting both harder AND better! Last weekend we had our Green Day show, and it was definitely the best show I've ever been in....and definitely the most fun!
What I really enjoy about the rock band shows is that I get to perform, and I get to sing the music I really enjoy. While I will always love Broadway, I started singing because of rock and pop music, so rock band will always be fun for me. We got to go crazy onstage and enjoy the showmanship of rock performance, which you can't usually do when you're performing other kinds of music.
The set was 27 songs, about two hours long - serious work! Because there were quite a lot of us, I was in only about half of the songs, singing lead vocals on 6 songs, and playing guitar or singing harmony on the others. As you can see , we had a blast!
And even better - my friend Erich Schuett came with his family to see the show! Thank you SO much for coming!!! Erich is one of my best friends and is exactly one day younger than me - and he is also the most incredibly talented opera singer. He has accomplished so much, and has performed in so many amazing places already, so it was really cool that he came to see me sing rock.
Here is a five-minute clip from the show - hope you enjoy it:
